Hot Springs Canyon Rim Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail was improved into an official trail not too many years ago, so some maps, including the topographic map, do not show it. The trail starts at the Hot Springs parking lot. Follow the trail down to the river, past the motel and post office built by J. O. Langford in the 1900s as part of his health resort at the springs.
After about 0.25 mile the trail passes the foundations of the bathhouse that he built over the main spring. Except when the river floods it, warm springwater still fills the foundation, creating a tempting hot tub. If this trail is done as a round-trip, a soak in the spring would make a welcome ending to the hike."
